The sun is finally shining in Virginia.
After days of dreary drizzle, the sunshine is heavenly.
To celebrate this much-needed event in
midst of the dark January days,
I made a Valentine banner -
my first banner ever.
Using fabric leftovers, I cut triangles
(just eye-balled it), two for each
part of the banner.
With back sides facing, I zigzagged
around the edges to finish.
Cut my binding tape the needed length.
Inserted each of my six triangles into the
tape, and pinned pinned pinned.
One long seam across the length,
and it was finished. I hung it beneath
my Valentine mantel (can't wait to show you!),
and I love it.
In my mind, I see a different banner
for every season of the year. No more
plain white fireplace bricks from floor
to ceiling. Color, glorious color!
Here are a couple of other little
snaps of color added to the
Valentine mantel yesterday ~
And of course, my favorites, M&M's ~
Stop by, I'll share them.
(Psst, don't tell - there are
more bags of them,
hidden in my secret hiding place.)
Hugs ~ Mary
